DVD review: ‘Meru’ ★★★


Anyone with a fear of heights should look away now. Jimmy Chin and Elisabeth Chai Vasarhelyi’s Meru is at its dizzying best when the filmmaking duo allow the facts and images of an astonishing feat to speak for themselves. Described by Buddhists as “the centre of the universe,” the knife-edge summit atop the Shark’s Fin of Mount Meru sits over 20,000 feet up in the northernmost reaches of India. 

Meru hits UK cinemas Friday 12th February – visit CineVue here to read the full review.
